Despite the fact that I’ve been painting so much for the past three days that I haven’t even had the time to shower, and I’m really starting to smell…my sister and I haven’t seen much progress in the kitchen project.  Most of our weekend was spent scavenging for good deals, and we’ve been painting those cussed deals ever since.  Not one item of painted furniture is 100% complete, so that means there’s no 100% sign of progress anywhere, as far as the eye can see.  We feel like utter failures.

We aren’t close enough to being done with the kitchen/dining room makeover for me to show you true before-and-after shots, but I can offer some before-and-during images.  I have to do something to prove that some (if even very little) progress has been made:

These are just a few of the projects we’ve undertaken (and haven’t finished).  As you can see, we have a LOT left to do; inasmuch as I am leaving Friday, I had better stop chatting away!  There’s work to be done.

Stay tuned for (hopefully) some real progress tomorrow.

    WOO HOO!! It might feel like you’re not making progress, but I can see the effort you girls are putting into it. I love the stools, too. Good call on painting them white.

    I love the progress too!
    The work your doing is something a TV show does in that amount of time. Remember your a hero for any of the projects that get completed.

    How in the world are you going to ever top this Mothers Day gift? Amazing!!
    I feel guilty. Glad my Mom doesn’t read your blog.. I still havent been over to help her organize. (shameful)

    You forgot to type the caption “$5 Wooden Craigslist Chair During.” I thought you proofread your posts! :) Looks fun and I love that bench thing. I can’t wait to see what you are going to do. Oh and for $1? That is awesome.

  7. Holly Decker says:

    pretty sure you have accomplished more than I have in the past few days… ;)
    i loathe painting, but you are doing splindidly!

  8. Nicely done.
    Progress is progress.
    Just thought I’d point that out.

  9. Kat says:

    I can’t wait to see it all done! I am so jealous of the wooden couch seat that you found. That was a steal. Those people must have been stupid!

    i feel like I stalk you! Sorry if you think I am crazy. I am. But that isn’t the point. I love these kinds of projects. I also love them more when I am not doing them.
    Also, I felt like I just blurted out my “pacemaker” news. I feel retarded about it. I keep replaying what I said in my head. EWWW, it sounds dumb!

    Can’t wait to see the end.. this is exciting.

    Is that your very own kitchen? It is darling and very spacious. I am officially jealous….
